Former Arsenal team-mates Mathieu Flamini and Emmanuel Adebayor look set to be reunited at Turkish club Caykur Rizespor.

Both players are free agents after their respective contracts with Arsenal and Crystal Palace were not renewed at the end of last season.

It appears as though they are now poised to head to the same club in Turkey.

"We reached an agreement in principle with both players," Caykur Rizespor coach Hikmet Karaman told Anadolu Agency. "They'll come to Rize within a few days and the last step of negotiations are going to be done.

"This is down to everyone devotedly working to finish the deals, so I have to thank the board of directors and our president."

Flamini made 242 appearances across two spells with Arsenal while Adebayor spent three years at the club from 2006-2009.
